Sixth form students have the opportunity to take part in mountaineering expeditions.

In 2016 twenty four Year 12 students took part in two 3 Peaks Challenges: 

In March they completed the Yorkshire 3 Peaks (Pen y Ghent, Ingleborough & Whernside) in under 12 hours, with a best time of 11 hours 15 minutes.  They followed this in July by completing the National 3 Peaks (Snowdon, Scafell Pike & Ben Nevis) in under 24 hours, with a best time of 23 hours 20 minutes. 

In 2017 twenty six Year 12 students took part in two 3 Peaks Challenges: 

In March they completed the Yorkshire 3 Peaks (Pen y Ghent, Ingleborough & Whernside) in under 12 hours, this year with a best time of 10 hours 45 minutes (all of Mr Johnson's group!). They followed this in July by completing the Welsh 3 Peaks (Snowdon, Cadair Idris & Pen y Fan) in 12 hours.

In 2018 we plan to offer an English 3 Peaks Challenge, in addition to the popular Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge.

This will involve summiting Scafell Pike, Helvellyn and Skiddaw in one weekend. For more details see the links on the right hand side of the page

"We have found the 3 peaks so far a huge challenge, but a great experience. We are proud of our achievements this year and are looking forward to the Welsh 3 peaks. It is great to work together as teams and encourage each other to keep on going."
